Welcome to Corrections RODP Course Before you do anything, please read and print the syllabus. This is my contract to you. If there are ANY changes you will be informed via email in the course.
At the beginning of every week you will need to consult the syllabus to determine what chapters and assignments are due that week. Then, you will open the course module for that week and review the Power Point Presentation. It will be beneficial to read the chapter(s) prior to viewing the Power Point. Finally, you will turn to the Assignment link to determine what assignments are due that week. This is where you are now.
For this week you are to:
1) Read Chapters 1 & 2 in the textbook and review the Power Point in the Course Module.
2) After completing those assignments, visit the following web pages:
